    Broken Repair Upgrade In-Place Upgrade In October 2020 20H2 Media Creation Tool.


    The most recent Media Creation Tool no longer allows you to keep files and apps as an option when re-installing Windows 10 via the ISO or MCT leaving you to only wipe everything likely due to a fundamental change in the build involving the build and edition IDs and values, or some other systemic bug inside of the software.

    Please help with a workaround for all clean installations, since the current one is only if someone has already upgraded and not installed 2H20 natively because they cannot remove the enablement package.



    Thank you.

    :)

    I would suggest waiting until M$ fixes this glitch. There's nothing much you're missing in 20H2 - I'm not installing in myself right now.

    Unless you sorely want something here: https://www.windowslatest.com/2020/1...ate-changelog/

    I doubt it is a glitch. I suspect it was designed that way.
